Why choose me

If you’re doing business with anyone outside the UK, I’m the person to speak with to make it happen easily and reduce the risk for your business. I’m passionate about helping people from different cultures work together to achieve something greater than would have been possible by themselves.

I work to provide political and commercial solutions as well as legal ones, and assist my clients in real time – no matter what time zone they’re in. In particular, I specialise in helping companies that want to work with businesses in China, getting deals done while spotting any potential dangers. I work with a vast range of businesses across the globe and if you’re looking to take the leap to work internationally, I can provide strategic, cost-effective advice.

If the risk can’t be sufficiently minimised when working with an international business, I’ll be open with you and I’ll tell you what is best for your business, no matter what stage the deal is at.

Questions my clients ask me

It depends on the nature of your enquiry, but we are the most cost-effective firm for overseas work and we make it clear how much our expertise will cost from the outset.

If you haven’t done these checks before you engaged them, then the chances are they are not OK. At this point, we’ll need to do some risk management work to make sure everything is above board.

Tax avoidance shouldn’t be the primary concern at the outset. Focus on getting everything else right first – having a workable, secure commercial structure is very difficult if you have prioritised tax advice first.

Read what my clients say about me

HCR has become our go-to law firm for TV and media work. We recently needed a production arrangement with a multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate. We had issues across the UK and EU; the arrangements are complicated but Raj Pahuja found ways to simplify the process and then isolate key issues for negotiation.

 

Go-to law firm for TV and media work

The relationship with us goes back a long way, and the service HCR provides in the more ‘traditional’ areas such as employment and education remains first-rate. But what has been especially pleasing is the way that, as our ambitions and vision have broadened, so too has HCR’s ability to support us on our journey. Of course I’m thinking in particular about our international plans and discussions – it’s no exaggeration to say that we couldn’t have come as far as we have without your tremendous support, expertise and sage advice. Thanks.
